Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Reading Group

Session #3 – February 22, 2018, 6:30-8 pm

The Edward P. Taylor Library & Archives is hosting a series of 7 monthly reading groups to discuss Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The Commission was established in 2008, as a condition of the Indian Residential School Settlement, with the dual mandate of gathering the testimony of survivors of the residential school system, and providing a path forward to healing and reconciliation. This reading group will pay particular attention to questions of how cultural producers and art institutions can acknowledge our various roles in the history and present of colonization, how our practices might change as a result.

The AGO library is pleased to be working with facilitators Michael White and Jeffrey Kiyoshk Ross as well as Knowledge Keeper Amy Desjarlais for the remaining sessions of this reading group.


For this session, participants should read the Legacy section of the report, pages 134-182, in advance of the gathering.

The report can be downloaded for free from the TRC website at the following link: http://www.trc.ca/websites/trcinstitution/File/2015/Honouring_the_Truth…

For those who attended the first session, please note the updated schedule below.
